Gen.G remain undefeated in Anaheim; advance to grand final over North

Gen.G bested North in a nail-biting 2-0 series to secure grand finals participation at their debut LAN event.

Gen.G maintained an undefeated record on LAN as Damian "daps" Steele and his men took on North in Anaheim looking to secure their first grand final. Dust2, North's pick, witnessed a late-game comeback spearheaded by Timothy "autimatic" Ta and Kenneth "koosta" Suen, in a victory that came down to the wire at 16-13. Later, the American-majority squad surpassed their opponents on Mirage in similarly close fashion, concluding the map and series 16-14.

autimatic and koosta put the lid on Dust2 in the concluding rounds

North kicked the series off on the CT side of Dust2, where the Danes secured the pistol round, later conceding momentum to a second-round force buy. Given an inch, Gen.G took a mile, as they consistently closed out rounds well into mid-half, in large part thanks to Hansel "BnTeT" Ferdinand's outstanding performance on the T side. Nicklas "gade" Gade and René "cajunb" Borg accounted for a second round on the defense, and despite the effort, only two more rounds fell in North's favor prior to switching sides.

On the T side North once more succeeded in the pistol round, this time generating significantly more long-term momentum than prior. Consistent conversions on the offense allowed the Danes to steadily close the round discrepancy, and after conceding but one round, found themselves in a 13-13 situation thanks to a quad kill from Markus "Kjaerbye" Kjærbye. Outstanding multi-frag responses from autimatic and koosta in the deciding rounds allowed the American-majority squad to run away with North's map pick at 16-13.

s0m's showing on Mirage was cardinal to Gen.G's success

Gen.G kept the ball rolling on the T side of Mirage, where autimatic continued to impress, landing a P250 triple in the opening round. The next two were on autopilot for the map leaders, but North struck back once their economy was in check, surpassing their opponents on the scoreboard. A struggle for power ensued, which North won in the short-term, but after a successful pistol buy from Gen.G, daps and company were able to soften their worsening deficit to a manageable 7-8.

Sam "s0m" Oh shone through in the second pistol with a quad kill, however, the CTs were unable to capitalize in the follower due to a timely force buy from North. Mathias "MSL" Lauridsen and company clocked in a string of successes, but once more faltered against a half buy from Gen.G, which threw off the Danes' flow. The Ts came close to a half buy victory of their own, however, a 3v2 advantage was squandered, allowing Gen.G to assume the lead and eventually find map and series point. Kjaerbye single-handedly ensured the 30th round, but a failed hunt on autimatic and BnTeT cost North the series at 16-14.

its not a race asian is a broad term for asia that whole region while people say north americans should that be a race because there are many different regions here as well or even calling all of europe europeans is that a race. no what would be race tho is calling everyone on gen.g chinese even tho none of them are descendants from china ( that i know of) so calling them asian is not a race it is a term to reference the broad of asia as a region of the world. in other words dont be a racist bigot asian is not a race

gen.G barely beats fucking north and NA suddenly thinks they have a competetive team lmfao
2020-02-23 22:53
Well uhh... I don’t think they’re gonna win a major but absolutely a better team than most that attended this tournament and I’ll take it! Btw don’t seem so tilted you still have Astralis to hold your feelings afloat.
2020-02-23 23:15
we have 4 teams better than north currently so i think im good ty, gen.G gonna be stuck in top15-20 at best
2020-02-23 23:18
4? Like without North, that leaves Astralis (Obviously), Heroic, and Mad Lions. Who is the 4th?
2020-02-23 23:31
at this point i would rate Cph Flames above North, ranking wise they are lower (only by 4) but their roster is much younger and have more potential
2020-02-23 23:32
I think they are more of a Big question mark tbh, online they seem on a good streak. However, the teams they faced are weaker. I only recognize TeSeS and AcilioN. They see neck and neck with AGO rn, I would say that North is better than CPH just by LAN and roster experience.
2020-02-23 23:51

Let’s not forget that daps knows how to unleash players look at Brehze, Ethan and Cerq. Now he has unleashed s0m the kid has the skill he just needed a daps type igl to help round his in game sense. But BnTeT is a god indeed
